UBC will soon be conducting a review of Policy 73, the policy for accommodations for students with disabilities (the full policy can be found here: http://universitycounsel.ubc.ca/files/2010/08/policy73.pdf). The AMS VP Academic’s Office, in anticipation of this review, would like more information on the experiences of students with disabilities at UBC, and how mental health concerns/mental illness might be better incorporated into the policy.
You are invited to participate in a one-on-one or a group focus group on your experiences, or to fill out a survey: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/3BC3LFK. Contact Anne Kessler at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in a one-on-one or focus group, or have any questions, concerns or needs for this survey. If you require assistance in filling out this survey, it can be provided.
Feel free to share this information with others!
